    Re: A Wide Angle View of the Disneyland Resort

    Oh, how I miss my wide angle lenses of the film days. Having to ditch all the old lenses in moving to the digital age, (along with jumping from Minolta after the Sony takeover), I currently use a Sigma 18-200 (effective 28-300) on my Pentax K10D, and find the widest angle so lacking for many of my shots I would like to be able to take.

    Outstanding thread, simply wonderful shots . . . thanks!

    Wow, great pictures! I loved the onboard train picture... it's like, "Lightspeed through Adventureland!!!"

    Re: A Wide Angle View of the Disneyland Resort

    Thanks again for your kind comments everyone. For those of you who are still following along, thanks for sticking with me. I'm back from Alaska and will post some of those shots in the Non Disney Vacation Destinations forum soon. As for this thread, some of my favorite shots are coming up from DCA, and I'm hoping that some of you will be able to hang in there long enough to check them out.

    So...here's part IV:


    Part IV: Toontown and Tomorrowland


    From Fantasyland, we head into Toontown...




    The buildings and vehicles in Toontown are already distorted, but the wide angle seems to make them more so...
















    Here's a couple shots on the way to Tomorrowland...










    When was the last time you saw a Nemo line like this? Gotta love the off season...




    More of Tomorrowland...







    Innoventions...







    Heading toward SM...










    For those naysayers out there, it is indeed haunted...especially this time of year...




    Inside...




    ...and after the ride at the arcade...




    Finishing the wide angle tour around Disneyland, we follow Mickey and the band back up Main Street on our way to DCA...

    Alaska!!??

    The tomorrow land shots are fantastic! Was this still super early in the morning because I don't think I've ever seen it that deserted!

    Re: A Wide Angle View of the Disneyland Resort

    Sheer wonderfulness. I'm loving every shot, more or less. Naturally, it helps enormously that you've got such a wide lens...but you've definitely got more than just the right lens. Your compositions are intriguing and fun.

    By the way, I assume you used a tripod for the Space Mountain queue shots...?

    Re: A Wide Angle View of the Disneyland Resort

    Mac Daddy, I'm still watching this thread. And I'm super happy that you're continuing this wide angle tour of the DLR!

    You're right about Toontown and the lens enhancing the exaggerated curves and perspective of that land. Love it!!! Thanks for sharing and welcome back! I'll look forward to your Alaskan TR and for the previously mentioned moose photo.

    Thanks Pengy. I believe the Tomorrowland shots were taken around 9:15 AM...possibly a bit later. But yeah. The park was a bit deserted that day. There was literally me and a handful of other guests on Innoventions. SM was almost a walk on. And yeah...my students had a gig in Anchorage and I just HAD to go with them. Anchorage and the surrounding area in the Fall is really pretty spectacular. I can't wait to go back. And thanks to your avatar, I've got a craving for those animal cookies...

    Thanks Data. Usually my interior shots don't come out so well without a 1.4 lens, but I must have skipped the coffee that morning. I just posted the ones where I got lucky. I was puzzled by the long exposure on the SM shot as I don't remember the shutter being open that long. It's ghosts, I tell you.

    And thanks Armadillo, Aashee, Mickey Maxx and others who are still following along. I'm almost done!

    I look forward to seeing some wonderful shots of Alaska!

    And good luck finding those animal cookies.

    Re: A Wide Angle View of the Disneyland Resort

    The wide angle pix of the Disneyland Band are brilliant. Also liked the Jolly Trolly and Autopia shots.

    Nothing like being able to walk right onto a big attraction like Finding Nemo Subs or Space Mtn. during off season. Can't wait to see Splash Mnt.

    Perister - Sorry about the large file size. I know that can be tough, especially with a slower DSL speed. I had horrible speed up until last year and it was always frustrating waiting for larger photos to load. I originally tried to post these at about 700 x 460 but I lost quite a bit of detail. I intentionally went with a larger size in order to not lose specific items as this lens tends to make things much smaller in the background.

    And RW - Thanks for your encouragement and for posting your favorite shots.

    Thanks, MD. Here's one of my fav shots with my fav Mouse leading my fav band.



    The dramatic sense of depth in these pictures is nothing short of amazing!

    I really like the storytelling aspect of this pictorial. It's like we made the "grand circle tour" through your wide angle lens.

    The first pic I loved the distortion how the Jolly Trolley was "in your face"; the second pic- I knew SM was "haunted" now there is proof; The third pic made me feel dizzy in a good way.

    Keep working your magic!

    Re: A Wide Angle View of the Disneyland Resort

    Part V: DCA

    Having left Disneyland, it's time to head across the esplanade...




    ...into DCA...







    A quick stop into the animation building. I like what the lens did with this room. I had no tripod, but I was able to brace the camera on a railing and on my knee...
















    After the animation building, I turned the corner and headed to the Tower of Terror...











    The palm trees look a bit taller from this angle...




    Then it was back across towards the Rapids...







    A quick stop into the hotel lobby...




    and then to the trail behind the Rapids queue which is one of my favorite spots in the DLR...













    before finally ending the tour at the Paradise Pier...












    THE END!

    (Thanks for hanging in there until the end. All of the above shots were taken from July - September 2008 with a Nikon D80 and Sigma 10-20 mm lens.)
